  • FREE Web Seminar on Retirement for Nurses

    A FREE web seminar on Planning for Retirement: A Guide for Nurses and Other Busy Women will be held next Thursday, July 29 at 2:0 PM EDT. According to the sponsors, the US Department of Labor, EBSA, the Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement (WISER) and the Center for American Nurses, “Planning for a secure retirement can be challenging for women. Women are twice as likely as men to live in or near poverty in old age, and many women who were never poor during their working years, will find themselves struggling to get by in retirement. The time to start planning for these years is now.”
